Mozambique has three development projects approved for the exploitation of natural gas reserves in the Rovuma basin, classed among the largest in the world, all located off the coast of Cabo Delgado province.

Two of these larger projects aim to channel the gas from the seabed to land, where it will be cooled in a plant for later export by sea in a liquid state. One is led by TotalEnergies (Area 1 consortium), while the other is an investment led by ExxonMobil and Eni (Area 4 consortium), with no announcement yet.

A third, smaller project also belongs to the Area 4 consortium and consists of a floating platform for capturing and processing gas for direct export at sea, which began in November 2022.
